The terrorists are coming! The terrorists are coming!
: Mike Wendland reports today on Priceline founder Jay Walker’s brain dingleberry to put web cams on power plants and other criticial facilities so nosy web watchers can keep an eye out for evil masked men approaching to blow them up. Sign up here.
How can you tell on a crappy web cam that somebody’s suspicious or merely dressed like a union worker?
And by the time you see this suspicious person and notify somebody, isn’t the plant probably already a smoking pile or rubble?
And if the bad guy can find the cam, can’t he put bubblegum in the lense or hack it to show old episodes of Gilligan’s Island?
And won’t authorities be besieged by calls from crackpots like Gladys Kravitz spying on Elizabeth Montgomery? (That’s a Bewitched reference, my children.)
This sounds like a remake of the remake of The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!
